From the manufacturer
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR f/1.8G ED Lens
Special edition of the popular 50mm f/1.8 NIKKOR lens. Boasts a compact and lightweight body with a retro-look and feel.
With a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, this is a great lens for low-light situations or when shallow depth of field is required. An aspherical lens element reduces aberrations and increases resolution, and Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) delivers whisper-quiet operation.
The retro design pays homage to vintage NIKKOR lenses and perfectly complements the looks of the Nikon Df.

This lens is Nikon Australia 50mm 1.8g and not 50mm 1.8g special edition lens.
Amazon delivery is very quick

Having had the 35mm f/1.8 DX lens for a while and being really pleased with that, I wanted that bit more focal length (knowing that it's equivalent to 75mm on my D3300), but didn't want to go as far as the 85mm (rather save for a decent 70-200mm)
When it was delivered, I immediately had to give it a quick try out...... resulting quick snaps in auto, aperture priority and shutter priority, as well as a few test shots in various preset modes were all absolutely stunning! Beautiful, crisp and sharp detail, perfect colours, smooth bokeh, no CA to be seen wide open or stopped down, absolutely no apparent vignetting throughout the aperture range either with or without the hood attached, fast and precise autofocus - what more could one ask from a lens?!
OK, so it's not "pro" quality but it feels and looks well built, handles nicely, isn't too heavy or at all bulky with smooth manual focus and superb low light results. I can see this lens pretty much staying on my camera for most occasions. Looking forward to a LOT of shooting with it - can't wait to use it "in anger"!!
Anyone who has "issues" with this lens must, quite simply, either not know what they're doing or have received a poor copy and really ought to just get it replaced/exchanged.
Personally, I don't think you'll find better glass for the money!!
Generally 50MM (used on FX modle) field of view is what your eye can see with some crop of 10meters.So choose wisely between 35mm and 50mm
I never consider myself to be a professional photographer to be honest, I just like taking a nice family photos.
After signing myself up for ClickLoveGrow enthusiast photographer course I was recommended to buy this lens, omg! the best money ever spent!
at first I went for basic 50 mm D series (but later on I have read the reviews saying it would not focus on my Nikon D3100) I have cancelled the order and added 50% more money to buy this one, I do not regret it!
If you are a beginner and are fed up of taking average pictures - buy this lens!
Images attached to my review are all taken in auto mode.
The thing you need to know is that it does not have zoom, so it's better for portraits I guess.
I just got it and I already love it!
My only regret is that nobody has told me about it earlier.
if you love nice pictures do not think twice! get it!
You won't get this kind of image quality in a zoom lens for under a grand. Obviously you are suck at 50mm here and that's why it's so cheap but it's unbeatable for portraits and street photography. The best lens I have ever bought without doubt.
Eines ist immer auf der D90 und das andere wird auf der D810 verwendet. Im Vergleich zu Sigma Art, den neuen Zeiss und diversen hochpreisigen natürlich nicht so extrem scharf bei Offenblende(leichte CA's), dafür aber leicht und ab 2.8 superscharf.
Klein leicht, günstig, ordentliche Abbildungsleistung auch bei 36MP.
Wenn man nicht gerade mit einem 1kg Objektiv rumlaufen möchte, dann ist dies eine absolute Empfehlung!
This isn't a macro lens, telephoto or wideangle lens, it is just a plain, but modern, 50mm 'standard lens'. Performance is significantly better than the earlier Nikkor AFn or AFD 50mm lenses and almost all non-AF Nikkor 500m lenses. The principle improvements are in edge sharpness and chromatic abberations although these may not always be apparent.
The downside for some people will be the lack of a manual aperture ring, but otherwise it functions as might reasonably be expected.
Is it worth upgrading to the AFS from an AFD 50mm Nikkor? It depends on what the lens is used for. The key is to read the objective (professional) reviews available online. Don't expect it to be stunningly better than any earlier lens.
Af works perfectly on the camera and it's great for portraits (humans and animals) I've even used it to shoot down at my local CrossFit gym getting some fantastic shots.
A great purchase after the kit lens.
Die Qualität ist einfach unschlagbar und die Bilder selbst bei Offenblende knack scharf. Man kann das Objektiv auch problemlos an Vollformatkameras benutzen, was den Kauf noch interessanter macht. Ich selbst nutze es an meiner Nikon D5100. Das war damals meine erste Festbrennweite. Was soll ich sagen? Einmal in den Genuss einer Festbrennweite gekommen, wird man gleich süchtig.
Ich habe mir danach auch das 35mm 1.8 dx von Nikon gekauft, welches ich auch wärmstens empfehlen kann. Das 35mm ist ein noch ein ticken schärfer und die Brennweite ist noch universeller einsetztbar (z.B.auch im Innenraum mit weniger Platz)
Jedoch ist von dem 50er das Bokeh schon um einiges schöner und gerade für tolle Portraitaufnahmen prima geeignet.
Besser gehts nicht zu dem Preis!!
The lens has a fairly low profile to it and very little weight compared to some of the bulkier lenses I use. This is by far the sharpest lens that I have in my collection and it is great in low light conditions. Superb price and a must have lens, you won't be disappointed.
It felt good quality and built to last and was a nice size when on the camera, the adjustment dial on the lens body was a nice feature also which isn't available on the 35mm version.
However, I found the fixed zoom level of 50mm didn't suit my camera of photography style in the end, I hadn't factored that as my camera (D7200) wasn't a full frame camera then this lens with crop factor is effectively more like having a 75mm lens, therefore was a little too much zoom for me for general use.
I exchanged it for the 35mm version which is slightly cheaper, but this works much better for my needs, using this one on my camera body I get roughly the 50mm I was looking for and the quality of the photos does not seem to have changed.
I can still get very good bokeh effects easily and it takes great photos in different scenarios and lighting, much better than my kit 18-140mm lens does in general, although this lacks the flexibility of the zoom level of the kit lens, so I think with these two lenses I don't need to carry too much and I get a great flexibility when needed.
Considering the price of some lenses, i think this is great value for money if it fits the style of photography you are looking for, just take into account the difference between using it on a full frame camera or APS-C type with the crop factor. (50mm vs ca.75mm)
Su diafragma maximo es f/1.8, lo que lo hace ideal para situaciones de escasa iluminación o cuando se desea una poca profundidad de campo, como retratos con un efecto bokeh.
La construcción óptica dispone de SWM (Motor Silent Wave) para permitir un auto foco rápido y silencioso.
Tiene dos modos de enfoque:
- autofoco con prioridad manual (M/A)
- enfoque manual (M)
El objetivo tiene un cuerpo ligero y compacto, y su montura en la cámara en metálica con sellado hermético.
Muy buena relación calidad-precio para conseguir unos resultados excelentes.
Sharp, clear optics are what you'd expect from a quality prime lens and this excels in that department. It does mean, however, a little footwork so no lazy zooming to get what you want, walk in, get close and shoot! I would say this lens stays on my camera 90% of the time and rightly so, it's earned that place and I wouldn't be without it. If you need anymore convincing, my website was shot predominantly on this baby! [...]
